Ordered book on line since the company according to the college failed to print and ship the amount of books request by the college. The day after we ordered, the other half of the books were delivered to the college. Called the company to tell them to cancel order as well as canceled online and they shipped 24 hours later after we cancel and charge my account. Sent book back once we received it... Read more

I have just spend 30 minutes trying to locate a product and then a phone number without success on either! If I could change curriculum products immediately I would as I have totally had it with Pearson. Each year, orders are incorrect and return policies are a hassle and now this huge waste of time tops it all off! In addition to this, I went to search for a rep in my areas and put in the...

I ordered student book editions several times. First off all I have to call as there is no on-line order platform that contains the school books my children use in class. Difficult access and difficult to order the most rudimentary tool kids need for school. Delivery times are 7-10 working days far above any decent competitive book seller, and delivery is not free for a up-to 10 days surface... Read more

WHAT. How am I even supposed to answer this question? Horrible question, awkward responses, and terribly put together program. I can't believe I paid this much for a program that doesn't even make sense. Their textbook makes about as much sense as their question does. Ugh! I read the whole textbook, and when I go to the questions I feel like I'm trying to pull answers out of thin air. Thank God... Read more

I have had multiple Pearson textbooks, as well as taking on SmartBook this semester (an online textbook/homework assignment program). First, they REQUIRE you to purchase the online textbook to use SmartBook, which is required for the class I'm taking. So, instead of spending a total of $70 for a used textbook and SmartBook, I had to pay a WHOPPING $250 for a textbook I RARELY use. To make... Read more

I've been using Pearson Labs for on-line college for 3 years now and have had errors on test materials, drop down boxes on tests or cells in tests that won't respond to mouse clicks. I have also had numerous site outages for as long as a day. Finally, customer service is never really able to assist you and claims you need to go back to your institution of higher learning to get a fix. Meanwhile... Read more

This website just crashed and I have test due. This isn't the first time as the exact same thing happened last quarter. Why do instructors keep using Pearson labs? Not only does it continually mark right answers as wrong or switch around your answer and mark it wrong but the website crashed at least once per week. Not only that they advertise "contact our 24x7 customer service" THEY HAVE NO... Read more

The website is constantly CONSTANTLY down, claiming "authentication failure,". Far too expensive for the large amount of issues. Pearson provides little to no customer service, and the waiting time for an online chat is on average 45 minutes. The system is not an efficient one. I spent over $200 and can assure you I did not get my moneys worth. My professors are fed up with their horrible... Read more

I have 3 assignments due and suddenly: "There is a problem with your authentication, possibly due to inactivity. For your safety, you have been logged out and must sign in again to continue." No chat, no phone number, no nothing. 5 minutes ago I had an A in this class - now I have a C. If assignments are due daily, then the site should operate daily. This platform will cost your students... Read more
